Arbitration analysis: The Supreme Court of India has decided that parties may provide, in their arbitration clause, for an appeal to a new arbitral tribunal. It has held that there is no express or implied prohibition against appellate (two-tier) arbitration in the Indian Arbitration and Conciliation Act 1996 (ACA 1996) and that party autonomy is paramount.
